since the genesis of my wanting to own less, creating has become confusing for me. i don't need endless numbers of dresses, no matter how cute. i don't need mounds of throw pillows or quilts…no matter how beautiful. so...i sew for a crisis pregnancy center, the children's hospital, and whatever charity collection i might come across online. i don't need a ton in my house, but i love to create. it makes me feel productive and useful and also like i've flexed a muscle that needs to see some action in order for me to thrive.
this week, i finished both of these beauties…one for me and one for the thrift store. i didn't want to waste the muslin, so a little time was put in to making it wearable for someone else. hope it finds a good home where it is well loved. mine is folded away and ready to be worn lots in the autumn! i love it!
